Lamborghini Countach. Ferruccio Lamborghini sold out to two Swiss in the early 1970s. Bankruptcy came in 1978. Operation by one-time racer Hubert Hahne followed. The Mimran brothers took over in 1980 and started the Diablo project before selling out to Chrysler in 1987. And the Countach was discontinued in 1990 after 2042 had been built.
